The Story of all in
In September 2012, a group of faithful followers of Jesus went ALL IN to launch 7 City Church with a vision…
to see cities transformed by equipping people
to know Christ, experience community,
and influence culture.
During 7 City’s first ten years, God’s faithfulness has been so evident as we’ve reached people with the Gospel and
impacted thousands of lives locally and globally.
On 7 City’s 10th birthday, not only are we celebrating this milestone moment, but we’re also turning our focus to the future. We believe God is calling us to unprecedented heights. That’s why we’re launching the ALL IN Vision.
ALL IN is a 2-year vision to equip the church, engage our city, and expand God’s Kingdom. An exciting season is ahead, but it will take all of us going ALL IN to make our greatest impact.
We are praying for you as we step into this bold vision for the future, and we are excited to see what God does as we go ALL IN together. Thank you for being a part of what God is doing at 7 City Church.
Pastors Stephen & Karen Blandino
Equip the church
DECISIONS FOR JESUS – We have a vision to see 250 people come to Christ and 100 people baptized in water at 7 City Church.
YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY – Because of our unique location, over 60% of 7 City’s visitors are single, most of whom are young adults. We will expand our efforts to reach and disciple 100 young adults.
EQUIP EVENTS – In addition to our weekly services, Next Gen Ministries, and Community Groups, we will launch Equip events to help people grow spiritually, relationally, and in leadership.
engage the city
COFFEEHOUSE – Over 11,000 vehicles drive by 7 City each day. We will leverage our building seven days a week by opening a coffeehouse that intersects the marketplace, adds value to the city, and hosts events that strengthen the church and community.
BUSINESS COACHING – We will mobilize the business expertise of leaders at 7 City to form a coaching initiative to help businesses thrive that are located in economically depressed areas of the city.
25 SERVE PROJECTS – We will organize 25 serve projects that mobilize 7 City to make a difference in our community and schools.
expand the kingdom
2 CHURCH PLANTS & LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT – We will partner with two pastors to plant 2 new churches in the heart of culturally influential cities in the United States. In addition, we will invest in 10 pastors through an urban church planters coaching cohort.
25 GLOBAL PARTNERS – In addition to our continued support of 25 mission partners, we’ll provide 7,000 Bibles to children through One Hope, and we’ll invest in John Maxwell’s Transformation Initiative to see 4,000 salvations one person come to Christ every 1 minute and 46 seconds).
